JUNE 2019 NEWSLETTER

Message from our President, Tom Seeley

Welcome to our newest members!

Thanks to members who hosted events in May. Please consider hosting an event if there is something coming up that you’ll go to yourself.

Our Anniversary Dinner was very successful, as well as being lots of fun. Thanks to the members who worked so hard to make it happen, and to all who participated.

As I said at the party, if anyone has questions, concerns, or suggestions, please send them in an e-mail to a Board Member, which leads to the next item. Because of concerns of some members, the board asked members via a survey about changing Happy Hour location for the summer. As a result, Happy Hour will be at Back To My Place, 3024 E. Henrietta Rd, starting the first Thursday in June.

Hope to see members at upcoming events,

Tom

Jan will send the flyer to Diane for inclusion on the website and to Ed Hall to print it for Happy Hour.

If the host makes his/her own flyer, it should be emailed to all of the following: Fred for the Newsletter, Diane (dnientimp@aol.com) for the Website and Ed (eth3067@rochester.rr.com) for posting at Happy Hour.
